Participating in  a global celebration of making music on the longest day of the year

Coventry, CT —The Song-a-Day Music Center in Coventry joins the international Make Music Day Celebration with a Talent Showcase on Friday, June 21, 2019.   Make Music Day is a one-day event where free, live musical performances, opportunities to make music, and other musical events take place around the world on the longest day of the year. Musical festivities in Coventry and throughout Connecticut are part of a global celebration of music making in over 800 cities inspired by France’s Fête de la Musique.

The Song-a-Day Music Center invites everyone from professional musicians to people who have never picked up an instrument to join in the global music celebration by attending the Talent Showcase it is hosting. The Talent Showcase will feature performances by students and instructors. Guest musicians are also welcome to perform.  The event, free and open to the public will run from 4P.M. to 8 P.M. at the Song-a-Day Music Center. Interested guest musicians are encouraged to contact the Song-a-Day Music Center to secure a time slot, although “walk-ins” are welcome, schedule permitting. A full sound system will be available as well as a keyboard. The event will be held rain or shine.

“To create, to make music is inside each one of us.  We all should have the chance to express that creative part of ourselves whenever possible,” says Ruth O’Neil, owner and director of the Song-a-Day Music Center.  “We are proud and excited to be part of Make Music Day.  This day is a true gift to communities everywhere.”Music has been shown to strengthen social connectivity, reduce stress, lower blood pressure, stimulate memory, and is integral to a well-rounded, enjoyable life. By participating in Make Music Day, the Song-a-Day Music Center encourages every form of music making.

National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) members and partners from coast to coast, including the Song-a-Day Music Center, will open their doors, joining in their communities’ celebrations of Make Music Day. June 21 is the perfect day to stop in to a local music store for some gear or to go out and play – whether it’s for the first time or the thousandth.
